In response to a question by Senator Clark, Ms. Logsdon stated that this administrative regulation required an interview for each applicant with a criminal history, except for traffic violations. For consistency, each committee followed a standard interview selection process. There have been approximately two (2) to three (3) interviews monthly, and the interview committee usually met the week prior to the monthly board meeting.

 

In response to questions by Co-Chair Harris, Ms. Logsdon stated that the board had statutory authority to interview applicants with a felony or misdemeanor history because the board was statutorily obligated to protect the public regarding massage therapy. Massage therapy involved situations in which the public was especially vulnerable, and the board needed to be able to thoroughly assess the character of each licensee in order to fulfill the charge of public protection. Even the investigation of violations pertaining to drug paraphernalia was necessary to ensure that licensees were not working while under the influence. The board was confident that this administrative regulation established adequate requirements regarding breast massage to clarify the proper context for the procedure.
